Announcements:The Special offering for the month of March is: Minnesota Foodshare,
2019 March Campaign Hunger Facts:  Nearly one in ten Minnesotans experience food insecurity. 1) 13.8% of children in Minnesota are food insecure. 2) 9.5% of Minnesotans live below the poverty level. 3) Over 3,000,000 visits were made to Minnesota food shelves each year, 2011-2017, with over 3.4 million visits in 2017. 4) The number of food insecure seniors and seniors utilizing food shelfs continues to increase. 5) Minnesota’s charitable food system (food shelves and food banks, meal programs, etc.) continues to run at capacity. Supporting government programs like SNAP (“food stamps”) and creating a more just and equitable food system are integral parts of meeting the needs of food insecure households and working toward ending hunger in our communities. There are specially marked envelopes in the pews for your donations. Thank you for your support of our special offerings.
